Beau Geste Red Blend 2013

5 Bordeaux Varietals

Named after a term for beautiful gesture, this wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts the other primary Bordeaux varieties blended in. Aromas of dark cherry, black tea, pencil lead and vanilla are followed by well-constructed smoke and dark fruit flavors with grainy, compact tannins that need some time to stretch their legs. This wine remains intense, totally captivating, and opulent!

WINERY SPEC SHEET (pdf download): 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

COMPOSITION: Majority Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. 14.3% ABV.

AGING: This wine gains complexity and pays dividends from cellaring. Drinks well 2017-2022.

VINTAGE 2013: This was Washington's warmest vintage since 2003. Still, it cooled off just in time for harvest. The resulting wines were less likely to tip over into overripe flavors or high alcohol levels, and picking proceeded at a normal pace. Total tonnage was up about 5 percent over 2012, a record for the state. The abrupt change in mid-September from hotter-than-normal to cooler-than-usual temperatures led some wineries to pick before grapes were fully ripe. Syrah was the star, although Bordeaux varieties did very well too. About the time the Merlot harvest was slowing down, Syrah and Cabernet kicked in. All of this allowed for a spread-out harvest without varieties running into each other. Winemakers really took their time and picked when they wanted.

VINEYARDS: Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKING: Greg Koenig, Consulting Winemaker. Fruit parcels from our Bordeaux varietal vineyards were vinified separately. After maceration and fermentation on skins, malolactic fermentation occurred during barrel maturation in a mix of new and old barriques - French, American and Hungarian in origin - for a period of 22 months. Bottled: August 2015.

CELLARS: Vinted, Cellared and Bottled in Koenig Winery, Caldwell Idaho (Snake River Valley)

CLOSURE: Traditional Cork
